This could be a major transformation in effectively treating cancer.
The patented tool, recently highlighted in Science, is based on imaging and analyzing proteins. It promises to be the ultimate tool for cancer drug developers and those working in basic research.
Opening a window on the cell
"It's a novel and new approach on how to look at biology," says Cohen. "We've developed a technology to really look into the cells. Biology [as a discipline] opens small patches in a closed room. It's like a house that's closed, with a window that opens here and there and allows you to see only a little of what?s going on. Our tool opens the whole wall. It lets you look at what's going on in the whole cell," he tells ISRAEL21c.
While the tool the researchers hope to commercialize will be very useful for basic cancer research, they also expect it to have an immediate application for drug development.
